    That`s an subjective opinion.

    You simply wouldn`t know that as an fact unless it actually happened.


    Also: That is a standard nun-cut (kinda.) Long hair is considered vain. Her hair is slightly longer than nuns back in the day.

    Every decision Blizzard makes has those who like it and those who hate it. I'll bet you a hoard of pirate treasure that if they made the female monk bald, the majority would despise it saying it's not a womanly thing.

    I'm on the fence - I don't hate the female monk, I don't love the female monk - but the only problem I have personally with her is the shoulderpads.

    I have studied art and design for 2 years.

    As a conventional textbook answer: "The main purpose of character design is to embody any significant personalities traits and attributes of the said character into a visual representation that audience can easily identify with."



    In the case of the female monk, it portrays an utterly incorrect image to the gamers.

    A monk is a religious person striving for spiritual enlightenment, which relates to humbleness, simplicity, a connection to nature, etc.

    A monk is not a fashion conscious materialist that spends 3 hours in a salon perfecting her hair.

    If it was indeed a professional design team who drew the female monk, they could have done a much better job.


    Sigh. I can shake my head of hair and it lands the same way as hers. I do not go to salons. Since she's a religious person striving for personal enlightenment (is that what Diablo monks do? I thought they made people explode with their fingers) why not just make her bald like the other one? Because nobody would like it and they wouldn't shut up about it until the game is either launched or changed.

    Personalities, traits, and attributes. She's a female monk in the world of Diablo. She is bad-ass. She kills demons from the burning pits of hell with her bare fucking hands. That hair seems more militant than frivolous. It's short, not in her eyes, not long enough someone can grab it in a fight.

    I think the male Barbs haircut is stupid let's give him a mullet.

    6 years in the making and they stuck at female monk art.. they are not even working on 5th class they better sold the franchise to a non lazy company, they don`t care if the game is released in 2012 or 2013 they still get payed for those months of "work". Its not like they are making the Ultimate Mega Game Ever Made In The Galaxy , wtf is just a game release it so we can have fun is you forgot to add some things release a expansion after some time and the game is complete.. the end.


    I couldn't disagree with you less. I'm impatient for Diablo 3 but I understand that while I sit here bitching and moaning on the internet they are actually doing stuff, they're not sitting around playing D2 with eachother all day and getting payed for it.I'm assuming the 5th class is done or at least nearly done, they're just waiting to release it because whatever act it is going to be displayed in needs work. Act 3 and 4, we haven't seen any of yet. They're probably hard at work doing them as we speak.

    well working the bugs out should be the easiest and fastest part especially if they have open beta sign ups, which im hoping they will have soon. Blizzard would never release a buggy game though. They have a lot of this game completed, i mean there is so much they have not released. I think it comes down to having games released in 2011 because if they do release starcraft and cataclysm this year what will they have to release in 2011? or 2012? Nothing really and it feels like this game could have or should have been completed by this year. I mean they wouldnt have released such a long and detailed gameplay trailer almost 2 years ago if they were not planning on releasing the game soonish. Things got held back for multiple different reasons i am sure. It happens but its really frustrating knowing they probably could have had it out this year with good quality but won't and then WoWs 3rd expansion comes out...


    They have a lot to release actually. Last I heard Starcraft 2 is being split into three different games (or is it going to be two extra expansions?) Either way each game will focus on only one race. They have plenty of WoW patches to do as well as another what, 4 expansions? I read somewhere there's going to be a total of six or eight WoW expansions. We also have the Diablo 3 expansion(s) they'll no doubt do. Oh and that new MMO they're making that nobody knows anything about.

    They honestly could release Cataclysm, SC2, D3 in the same year because with all the expansion and patches we'll have over the next two years after Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 are released we're going to be all Blizzarded out.

    But I also don't like the hairstyle much, too modern and trendy for a "monk", who is supposed to be humble and should have already reached a level of spiritual enlightenment to NOT follow shallow fashion trends of the mere mortals.


    Too trendy. Okay why don't we give her a bowl cut and be done with it?

    The people who created her are a design team, sure she could have had less stylish hair, but then you'd complain that she looks bland and needs something to make her look cooler.

    posted a message on Religion, yup another one.
    I am not going to read this thread. It will make me angry and ruin my evening. I will, however, leave you with these passing tidbits:

    Incest is a sin. Says so in Leviticus. Many many times. Adam and Eve were the first two humans..right? Their kids had kids. Then those kids had kids. So on and so forth. Everyone you've ever slept with is somehow related to you. According to the Bible we're all going to hell for incest.

    Most religious folk I know (not all, mind you) believe in creation and spurn evolution. Back to Adam and Eve - if they were really the first humans that would mean they were Neanderthals, and coexisted with the dinosaurs - unless you're going to tell me fossils were planted by Satan to trick us into sin like my friends mother tells me? "Dinosaurs didn't exist," she says. "Their 'bones' were planted here to lead you from the path by Satan!" What are the chances of two people, tossed out of the Garden of Eden into the wilderness with no food and no clothes, surviving? What hunting skills did God implant into Adam's mind? Did God teach Eve to cook over a fire (which probably hadn't been discovered yet?) Also, they did speak with God, right? What language? The Bible was written in Hebrew first, right? So they spoke a language that hadn't been invented (for lack of a better word) for hundreds (thousands?) of years, then promptly forgot it when leaving the Garden.

    Don't get me started on that dude who lived in the fish for three days. And the talking mule.

    Kinda agree, but I'd rather wait a year and play other games and have a fully completed Diablo 3, than have it sooner with lots of bugs, Hellgate: London style.

    Ill be playing on Europe as well. That is assuming that Battle.net 2.0 will be divided into 4 servers like the old system.

    I'm sure there will be lots of clans and they can advertise on the forums and ppl can join and so on .. The best situation would be if there was one or two clans for each relam.


    I'm hoping it won't be split into four, but I do hope it'll be split by language. USEast is FLOODED with French people right now - nothing wrong with that, I just can't understand a word of what they're saying lol.

    Cool find. I'd like to see the grayed out parts, though. Video and sound options, make sure there's a Subtitles on/off (can't play any game without subs, I like to read >.>)

    True, true ! Same thing here, nothing load up for the page. We all have to remember 1 thing... Soon doesn't mean our soon. It means one day, there will be an update.


    I know, those sneaky devs, right. I was hoping for once "soon" meant in a few hours, since the pics were already out on TV right, why not just add them to the webpage. It can't honestly be that hard, they're just really lazy.

    I think I was so believing at first because:

    Quote from Bashiok »
    Yes, that is indeed the female monk.

    We'll have an official site update and a couple high-res goodies soon.

    was posted earlier today (11am or so I think?) and I had the thought that maybe, just maaaybe, the "official site update" might include the fifth class and Blizzcon 2010 would have a release date. It's been half a day and no update on the site yet, but we'll see what hi-res goodies we get shortly. I hope.
